Summer. — Mars occasions, above all other planets, a 
hot Summer ; and the heat of the Sun will be so great, 
that one can scarcely walk on the sand without shoes. 



Fall Crops. — Rye will yield well, but wheat will b 
only a medium crop.

[1876. 



Centennial Items. 



As this year is the One Hundredth Anniversary 
f American Independence events that occurred 
)ne hundred years ago, will be of special impor- 
ance and as we are just now in the Almanac busi- 
ess, it gives us pleasure to have lying before us 
n Almanac published in the year 1776 by brother 
Jhristopher Saur, of Germantown, Pa. It is the 
iroperty of Bro. Abrm. H. Cassel who kindly sent 
: to us that we might get some extracts from it. 

The first page or frontispiece is of such pecu- 
iar design, that we failed to get its true signification . 
n tbe upper left hand corner there are a number 
»f stars, the moon with clouds for a background, 
n the middle, top, there is a picture of a man, well 
upplied with wings, seemingly traveling on a rain- 
)0W, with a ppear in one hand and in the other a 
anner with the inscription on it: "Kuemmerliche 
/eiten." and in the other corner, "1776." In 
bout the middle there is a city, showing a number 
>f very high steeples, while further down there are 
wo men apparently, on some kind of a deal. 

In the left hand corner there is a man standing 
n a boat, and above or back of him are the ships of 
;ommerce, and in the right hand corner below, 
tands tbe picture of a dog. On page second is a 
egister of the births of the rulers of Europe, and 
)n the second title page we have the following : 

' Der Hoch Deutch Americanische Kalenderauf 
as Jahr nach der Gnadenreichen Geburt unseres 
lerrn und Heilandes Jesu Christi l776. 

Germantown : Gedruckt und zu finden bei Chris- 
opher Saur. Auch koennen die auswaertige Krae- 
ner solche bei Mr. Reinhold und der Wittwe Ottin 
n Philadelphia haben, oder in Lancaster bei Lud- 
vig Laumann, in New York bei Michael Hoffmann 
ind anderen." 

In it we find many things of interest, more per- 
laps on account of their antiquity than real value, 
)ut only give the following which will show that in 
ome things, one hundred years has not made a 
7ery great change after all : 

What is to biwdone before bleeding. 

Above all this to remind that whoever wishes to 
be bled, it may be in the arm, in one hand or foot, 
he whole garment must, without fail be warm ; 
butif it b#cold, then the person to be bled, must 
walk rapidly, or drink hot drinks, so as first to warm 
bhe blood, els© it will not flow at all, or only the 
thinnest, and such a bleeding would be more harm- 
ful than useful. 
What IS TO be conjectured from the blood 

AFTER BLEEDING. 

(1) Beautiful red blood, covered with water, in- 
dicates good health. (2) Red and frothy, much 



blood (or inflammation). (3) Red with a black ring, 
gout. (4) Black, frothy or purulent, bad humidity 
and cold discharges. (5) White blood is an indi- 
cation of a collection of tough moist mucous (6) 
Blue, splenic pain or melancholy. (7) Green blood, 
heart-ache or acrid bile. (8) Yellow blood, pain 
in the liver and gall. (9)Watery, indicates a weak 
liver, or overflowing stomach. (lO) Thick, hard 
and tough blood, is an indication of constipation or 
melancholy. 

Of Felling Timber, 

Good Building timber is felled ; when the Moon is 
decreasing under the Earth, in Taurus, Virgo, Cap- 
ricornus in the best order, when the sap is out 
of the wood, that is in Dec. Who would cut to 
deaden trees, can do so in the spring before the 
sap rises, by cutting through the bark only, that 
the sap cannot rise; but who waits until the sap 
has risen, must cut entirely through the sap wood. 
For very great thirst in fever 

Cut a white onion in small slices, lay these in 
fresh spring water, and take then some slices and 
lay one on the tongue, and if it becomes hot and 
dry, take it away and take afresh slice, this quenches 
not alone the hot thirst, but guards him against ap- 
prehension of an attack of Quinsy. 
For the Fflon. 

When applied early, very often a salve of hard 
soap, sage sap, and good Rum applied warm, will 
drive out the evil. 

For Poison of Poison Ivy. 

Take broad Plaintain leaves ; bruise, and mix 
them with cream, spread this on a cabbage leaf, 
and apply to the poisoned place : besides, senna 
physic will be very useful. 

A Salve to strengthen the Nerves. 

Boil 5 handfuls sage in fresh butter, one quarter 
of an hour, strain through a cloth and anoint your- 
self with it. 

Of Dropsy. 

Of all domestic remedies the expressed sap of 
the Elder-root, has had the best results; take there- 
of morning and evening one, two, and if necessary 
more nutshells full, and use several times. Some 
have taken three handfuls of the middle bark of 
the elder, put in a pint (of water) and boil down to 
a half a pint, of this have given the half in the 
morning, and the other half in the evening. Here 
notice that you take of the last year's growth of the 
elder rind, if you desire it to f)urge upwards, you 
are to scrape the bark upwards, but if downwards, 
also to scrape downwards. When, however, the 
bowels are cleansed, and the water is carried away, 
then take the stalk of the Hog-bean, Broom, wild

To our Patrons. 



By this, dear reader, we again remind you that 
other year is numbered with the past and that 
! are now about entering another new period of 
ne. Whether the future, for us, shall be an im- 
ovement on the past is for us to decide. Frank- 
\ says : "If Time be of all things the most pre- 
)us, wasting Time must be the greatest prodigal- 
7, since lost Time is never found again; and 
lat we call Time enough always proves little 
ough." Never were truer words spoken and 
len we take a retrospective view, our prodigality 
ghtens us. 0, the loss ! the loss ! Our build- 
rs may burn, banks may suspend and our riches 
y take wings and fly from us; by labor, economy 
i the blessings of God, our wealth may be re- 
3med, but time once lost is lost forever. 
Of the year that is now past much might be 
d, but our experience has recorded its history, 
d we turn the page over with the consciousness 
it if the record is not good the fault was our own, 
a kind and beneficent God freighted it with 
jssings entirely sufficient for all our wants. 
The present year, 1876, is one of more than or- 
lary interest to the American people, being our 
ntennial of national and religious liberty. For 
le hundred years we have enjoyed the blessings 
free and religious government, one that 
3uld have made us a happy, prosperous, grateful 
i Christian people, and we hope and believe it 
J. During this period, our little Zion, under its 
jsent organization, has grown from one, to one 
ndred ttiousand and to-day we stand as a happy, 
ited and prosperous people. God be praised for 

goodness and tender mercies towards the chil- 
3n of men. 

With this introduction, we now present to you 
r Almanac for 1876, and hope it may be a wel- 
ne and useful guest to the home and fireside of 
iry Christian family in the land. Whether this 
considered an improvement on the last we can 
t tell, we have endeavored to make it so, and in 
ne respects we think we have succeeded, 




The Ministerial list has been greatly reduced by 
using smaller type and thus gives more room for 
reading matter which we have tried to make as 
interesting as our means and facilities would aflbrd. 

Thanking you, Christian friends, for your liberal 
patronage, timely assistance and hearty coopera- 
tion, we now wish ynu a happy and prosperous year, 
and that by the grace of God, we may be enabled to 
spend it to His honor and glory and our salvation.

Mount Sinai. 



The exact location of this memorable spot, sacred 
in the minds of all Christian people as the place 
where Jehovah appeared to man in fire ; where the 
Ten Commandments were written by the finger of 
the Lord upon two tables of stone and delivered to 
Moses — has always been unsettled But a Calle 
telegram announces that all doubt is now removed. 
Dr. Beke, the celebrated scholar and traveler, gives 
as the result of his recent expedition the discovery 
of Sinai and the finding of verifying inscriptions, 
of which he has made copies. The cable dispatch" 
says that the expedition places the holy mountain 
at "a day's journey northeast of the village of Aka- 
ba, Arabia, at an altitude of five thousand feet 
above the level of the sea." 

Dr. Beke has long maintained that Sinai was an 
extinct volcano, and the correctnees of that opinion 
is now said to be fully confirmed by his personal 
explorations. Indeed, the Biblical account of the 
manifestations, which took place at Sinai in the 
presence of the tribes of Israel, corresponds in sev- 
eral respects to the descriptions given in these mod- 
ern times of the volcanic eruptions of Vesuvius. 
In the nineteenth chapter of Exodus the following 
graphic narrative is presented : 

"And it came to pass on the third day in the 
morning that there were thunders and lightnings, 
and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice 
of the trumpet exceeding loud ; so that all the peo- 
ple that were in the camp trembled. 

And Moses brought forth the people out of the 
camp to meet with God ; and they stood on the 
nether part of the mount. 

And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, 
because the Lord descended upon it in fire ; and 
the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a fur- 
nace, and the whole mount quaked greatly"

[1876. 



Moses then went up the mount, and the Ten 
)mmandments were proclaimed; the inspired nar- 
tor adds : 

"And all the people saw the thunderings, and 
e noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smok- 
g ; and when the people saw it, they removed 
id stood afar off." 

Subsequently it will be remembered, the Isra- 
ites forgot their vows and went back to heathen- 
1 practices of idol making, and set up a metalic 
If, Moses, on coming down from the mount, had 
e tables of stone in his two hands ; and when he 
w the molten calf, he threw down the tables and 
oke them in pieces Then he broke up the idol, 
mcded it into fine dust, which he scattered in a 
ook that came down from the mount. The in- 
dred narrator then tells us how, by prayer, the 
prd was appeased, and he commanded Moses to 
w out another pair of tables, and take them up 
le mount, which he did. Whereupon the Lord 
^ain wrote out the same ten commandments as at 
st, and gave the two new tables to Moses, who 
ought them down from Sinai and put them in an 
k which he had made of shittim wood, "and there 
ey b^," Deut. 10:5. 

It would be interesting to know what kind of 
ones are conveniently found at Sinai, out of 
hich Moses might have hewn the tables. From 
eir light weight, indicated by his carrying one 
each hand, going up and down the mountain, it 
ould seem as though they might have been com- 
)sed of slate or other laminated formation. We 
•esume that Dr. Beke's report will give full par- 
3ulars of the geology of the neighborhood, and 
^rhaps tell us something new about the Mosaic 
ones. 



Curious Scientific Pacts 



1 A slight blow is sufficient to smash a whole pane 

* glass, while a bullet from a gun will only make a 

I. nail round hole in it; because in the latter case 

lie particles of glass that receive the blow are torn 

jYay from the remainder with such rapidity, that 

|ie motion imparted to them has no time to spread 

.irther. A door standing open, which would read- 

y yield on its hinges to a gentle push, is not 

oved by a cannon ball passing through it. The 

ill, in passing through, overcomes the whole force 

' P cohesion among the atoms of wood, but its force 

I* its for so short a time, owing to its rapid passage, 

'' lat it is not sufficient to affect the inertia of the 

oor to an extent to produce motion. The cohe- 

on of the part of the wood cut by the ball would 

ave borne a very great weight laid quietly upon 

; but suppose the ball fly at the rate of twelve 

undred feet in a second, and the door to be one 




inch thick, the cohesion being allowed to act for 
only the minute fraction of a second, its influence 
u not perceived. It is an effect of this same prin 
ciple that the iron head of a hammer may be driv 
en down on its wooden handle by striking the op- 
posite end of the handle against any hard substance 
with force an i speed. By ^his very simple opera- 
tion the motion i^ propagated so suddenly through 
the wood of the handle, that it is over before it 
can reach the iron head, which, therefore, by its 
own weight, oinks lower on the handle at every 
blow, which drives the handle up.

Dress in the Sunday School Teacher. 

Surely among religious people this subject should 
engage more serious attention than it generally 
does, and especially as it affects the influence of the 
Sunday-school teacher. What, we may ask, will be 
the natural effect of a gaily-dressed teacher upon 
the minds of the little group whom she has gath- 
ered round her ? She may diligently and orthodoxly 
expound to them the "sermon on the mount," or 
'the scheme of redemption;" but they will be 
admiring her artificial flowers, be twisting an im- 
aginary ribbon into fanciful bows like hers, or be 
countmg her flowers, her fringes, or her buttons; or 
they may be wishing, like a little girl I have heard 
of, that she was a " grown up woman to wear a 
dress like the ladies, to draggle." Round the tea- 
table at home, the young scholars will describe 
with interest the exact minutiae of the teacher's 
dress ; but, alas for " the scheme of redemption," — 
that will have gone in at one ear, and out at the 
other. — Mrs. Sewell. 

Aid. — I will here state a few items of the 
Brethren's Aid Society supplies to the destitute dur- 
iny the year 1875. 

Supplies furnished the needy of Johnson Co., Mo. 
by the Brethren. Corn, about Five thousand 
Bushels. Flour, Forty-six thousand lbs. Meal, 
Forty-two thousand lbs. Molasses, Nineteen bbls. 
Beans, Twenty-five bbls. Hominy, Eleven bbls. 

This includes the bulk of supplies furnished. A 
detailed stateu.ent would increase the amount spec- 
ified. In the above statement, there is no allusion 
to the supplies sent by us to Henry, Bates, and 
Vernon Counties to the brethren.

The Inattentive Hearers. 



m 



A gentleman was once preaching to a large con- 

|( egatioD, when his attention was attracted by a 

mpany near the door who annoyed him exceed- 

gly. A young man was apparently doing some- 

ing with his hands, which the others were intently 

serving. The young man did not look up to 

but seemed absorbed in the work he had in 

md. The others were equally interested, as was 

n 9! ain from their speaking countenances, which often 

jamed with a smile of satisfaction. As he went 

I he puzzled himself to know what they could be 



)ing, but all in vain. One thing, however, he was 



15 2( lly decided upon. Their bi-havior was very irrev- 



172' 



ent in the house of God, and highly disrespectful 
him. He felt some resentment toward those 
__ ho should so trifle while he was dilivering so sol- 
fiiii, bn a message from heaven to them. He was 
^.irprised to see them linger after service, and still 
'^■'" [ore when a friend introduced him to them. They 
iOMere all from a deaf and dun»b asylum and the 
')% \ )ung man who sat at the end of the seat had 
joj ( terpreted the sermon to them in the sign lan- 
, J ' aage. How were the feelings of the minister 
'^1 (tally changed ! How was he gratified to preach 
>6| i ( those whose ears were sealed to all outward 
]1\ { unds ! He shook the young man warmly by the 
— ' md and felt toward him like a brother beloved. 
^.e inquired how much of the sermon he was able 

> communicate to them and was answered, "Almost 

le whole of it." 
The minister felt more than ever the importance 

'being slow to think evil of others, or to imagine 
2|l(ae offenses were intended without very strong 
111 'Oof of it. Many others might recall this incident 
ri(ith profit when they feel the risings of resentment 
L ►r some fancied ill-treatment. We are so apt to 
Tiistake ourselves, we should observe the widest 
jin, barity in our opinions of the acts of others, thus 
-- Ding only as we would be done by.

A Praying Machine. 

Zwick gives the following description of a pray- 
^r-machine, used by the Tartars and the Jap- 
laese : — 

"The Kurdu, or prayer-machine, consists of 

ollow, wooden cylinders of different sizes, filled 

ith Tangud writings. The cylinders are painted 

6tl ith red stripes, and adoroed with handsome gilt 

jnoff otters in the Sanscrit character, commonly making 

19t distinct sentence. Each of these is fixed upon 

25tn iron axis, which goes through a square frame. 

ome of these frames are capable of being shut up 

at, and are formed upon a small scale, much like 

weaver's shearing machine. In many of them, 




^^^^ 



where the lower parts of the frame cross, there is a 
hole in which the axis of the cylinder turns ; by 
means of a string which is attached to a crank in 
the spindle, the machine can be kept in motion, so 
that the cylinder turns in the frame like a grind- 
stone upon its axis. 

These prayer-mills form a much more important 
service, in the estimation of those who use them, 
than a rosary, which is only intended to assist the 
person who prays ; whereas those who use these 
machines believe that when set in motion, whether 
by the wind or otherwise, such writings as contain 
prayers and other religious documents, that the 
noise of these scraps of theology may reach to the 
gods, and bring down a blessing. To turn the 
prayer-machine round once is considered to be 
equivalent to the repetition of a prayer, and every 
turn of it multiplies the petition; so that the trav- 
eler with a powerful arm can repeat any number 
of prayers." 

Oti, how our hearts should swell with gratitude 
to God, that we have a knowledge of the true and 
living God, to whom we can come and pray from 
the heart. 



How and What to Read. 



The intelligence of an individual is not always 
measured by the amount which he reads. A large 
amount of reading may in fact become hurtful, un- 
less attended by a corresponding amount of thought. 
The following suggestions upon this subject, by 
Sir William Hamilton, are both mteresting and 
valuable : 

"Read much, but not many works. For what 
purpose, with what intent do we read ? We read 
not for the sake of reading, but we read to the end 
that we may think. Reading is valuable, only as 
it may supply the materials which the mind itself 
elaborates. As it is not the largest quantity of any 
food taken into the stomach that conduces to health, 
but such a quantity of such a kind as can be di- 
gested; so it is not the greatest complement of any 
kind of information that improves the mind, but 
such a quantity of such a kind as deterJiines the 
intellect to the most vigorous energy." 

The only profitable kind of reading, is that in 
which we are compelled lo think, and think intense- 
ly; whereas that reading which serves only to dis- 
sipate and divert our thoughts, is either positively

it, as a habit, it is, in its way,

*Our age," says Herber, "is the reading age ;"

Dr. Johnson applied himself to the Dutch lan-

Alas ! for him who grows old without growing 

-ise, and to whom the future world does not set up 

I'ier gates, when he is excluded by the present. The 

ord deals so graciously with us in the decline 

f life that it is a shame to turn a deaf ear to the 

Bsson which he gives. The eye becomes dim, the 

ar dull, the tongue falters, the feet totter, all the 

enses refuse to do their office, and from every side 

esounds the call, "Set thy house in order, for the 

fen arm of thy pilgrimage is at hand." 

The playmates of youth, the fellow laborers die 
\.y, ay, and take the road before us. Old age is like 




some quiet chamber, in which, disconnected with 
the visible world, we cau prepare in silence for the 
world that is unseen. — Tholuck.

At a certain time, not long since, at an exciting 
revival, during a furious handshaking by the preach-

The Most Northern Town in the 
World. 

If you take your maps and look on the northern 
part of Norway you may see the name Hammer- 
fest there, in small letters, but if not, the town it- 
self is situated in 70° 40" so that you will know 
very nearly where it is. Well, this little town of 
2.057 inhabitants is said to be the most northernly 
one in the world. There are probably scattered 
individuals that live farther north, but no more 
northerly organized city or village. 

The principle business of the people is fishing 
and the manufacture of cod liver oil, and the odor 
of the oil makes it a very disagreeable place to stay 
in, except for those who are used to it. 

The sun sets there November 18th, and rises 
January 28th, so that the children have to go to 
school with lanterns, whenever the moon does not 
shine, for about six weeks. But then, again, to 
make up for it, in the summer the same sun rises 
June 1st, and does not set until July 22nd. We 
should think the poor little things would get be-

SAMARIA. 



a£ 



2( The Scriptural reminiscences connected* with Sa- 

2) aaria are many and interesting. Here Ahab, at 

p{ be instigation of Jezebel, his wif% biult a temple 

nd altar to Baal, (1 Kings 16: 32;; herewith 

e false prophets prophesied before him and Je- 

)shaphat, "in a void place in the entrance of the 

51 ate of Samaria," and the true prophet Micaiah de- 

ounced upon him speedy judgment of heaven; to 

Kis place was his body brought and buried, "and 

j ne washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria, and 

be dogs licked up his blood," (1 Kings 23). Here 

ehu "slew all that remained unto Ahab in Sama- 

ia, and then destroyed by stratagem all the wor 

5 iiipers of TJaal. (2 Kings, 10). The city was hon 

I red by the presence and miraculous deeds of Eli 

h la. Here this prophet healed Naaman, the Syrian, 

f his leprosy, (2 Kings 5), and sending amessen- 

11 < er hither, apparently from Dotham, disclosed to 

he King of Israel the plans of the Syrian invad 

rs. (2 Kings, 6 : 8 — 12). Here also he predicted 

12! 9 icredible plenty at a time of distressing famine 

jglOPhap. 7) After the outpouring of the Spirit on 

he day of Pentecost, Samaria with its villages was 

^^le first place without the limits of Judea that re- 

lol^eived the gospel, (Acts, 8: 5 — 25), and it early 

15 13 ecame the seat of a Christian Bishop.

Ancient Wine Press. 



In Syria, the vintage begins about the middle 
fj\{ f September, and continues for about two months, 
t is earlier in Palestine, where the grapes are 
ometimes ripe even in June or July ; this arises 
l" 1' )robably from a triple pruning, in which case there 
also a third vintage. The first is in August, sec- 
nd in September, and the third in October. 
Joyous, indeed, was the season when the grapes 
cloudyferere plucked off, and carried to the wine-press, 
vhich was built in the vineyard, whose site was 
carefully closed in fields of a loose crumbling soil, 
[lunclenn a rich plain, or a sloping hill, rising with a gen- 
priii, le ascent, or, where the acclivity was very steep, 
n terraces turned as much as possible from the set- 
in g sun. The wine-presses were either built of 




stone, or hewn out of a large rock. The grapes 
were thrown into the upper part, to be trodden by 
men, and the juice flowed out into receptacles be- 
neath. The treading of the wine press was labori- 
ous, but it was performed with singing, and some- 
times accompanied with musical instruments. 

Oil of olives was expressed the same way, be- 
fore the invention of mills. The existence of this 
practice in Palestine, is evident, from the language 
of Moses : "Let Asher dip his foot in oil ;" and 
from the threatening, "Thou shalt sow, but thou 
shalt not reap ; thou shalt tread the olives, but 
thou shalt not anoint thee with oil ; and sweet wine, 
but thou shalt not drink wine." Micah 6 : 15. 

To the custom of treading grapes and olives, 
reference is frequently made by the inspired writ- 
ers. Thus the glorious eonquerer, who appeared 
in a vision to Isaiah, said: '*I have trodden the 
wine-press alone ; and of the people there was none 
with me ; for 1 will tread them in my anger, and 
traa»ple them in my fury ; and their blood shall be 
sprinkled on my garments, and I will stain all my 
raiment." Isa. 63 : 3. As the clothes of the tread- 
ers were sprinkled with the juice of the grapes, so 
were the garments of the Redeemer with the blood 
of his enemies, who were as easily and completely 
crushed by his almighty power, as are the full 
ripe clusters of the vine, beneath the feet of men. 
The same figure is employed in the book of Reve- 
lation, 14 : 18 — 20, to express the fearful destruc- 
tion which awaits the adversaries of Grod and of 



man. 



Origin of the Names of the Days. 

The idols which our Saxon ancestors worshiped 
— from which the days of the week derive their 
names — were various, as were the principal motives 
to their adoption. 

The Idol of the Sun. — This idol, which represent- 
ed the glorious luminary of the day, was the chief 
object of their worship. It is described like the 
bust of a man upon a pillar, holding, with out- 
stretched arms, a burning wheel before his breast. 
The first day of the week was especially dedicated 
to its adoration, which they termed the JSun's doeg, 
hence is derived the word Sunday. 

The Idol of the Moon, — The next was the idol of 
the moon, worshiped on the second day of the 
week, called by them Momi's doeg ; and since by us,

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1876, 



Vlonday. The form of this idol is a short coat and 
I hood, havinj^ two long ears. The moon which 
ihe holds in her hand represents the quality. 

The Idol of ^msco.— Tuisco was first deified as 
;he father and ruler of the Teutonic race, but in 
jourse of time he was worshiped as the son of earth. 
From this came the Saxon word Tuisco's doeg, 
vhich we call Tuesday. He is represented as 
itanding on a pedestal, an old, venerable sage, 
jlothed in the skin of an animal, holding a sceptre. 
n his right hand. 

The Idol of Wodin or Odin. — Wodin, or Odin, 
Yas the supreme divinity of the northern nations. 
This ht^ro is supposed to have emigrated from the 
East, but from what country, or at what time, is 
lot known. His exploits form the greater part of 
;he mythological creed of the Northern nations, 
md his achievements are magnificent beyond cred- 
bility. The name of the fourth day of the week, 
galled by the Saxon Woden's doeg, and by us VVediies- 
iay, is derived from this personage. Woden is 
•epresented in a martial attitude, with a broad 
iword uplifted in his right hand. 

The Idol Theor. — Thor, the eldest and the bravest 
)f the sons of Woden and Friga, was, after his 
parents, sonsidered the greatest among the Saxons 
md Danes. To him the fifth day of the week, 
3alled by them Thors doeg^ and by us Thursday, was 
3onsecrated. Thor is represented as sitting upon 
1 throne, with a crown of gold upon his head, 
idorned with a circle in front, wherein were set 
twelve bright, burnished gold stars, and with a 
regal scepter in his right hand. 

The Idol of Friga ^ or Frea. — Friga or Frea, was 
the wife of Woden, or Odin, and next to him, the 
most reverend divinity among the heathen Saxons, 
|)anes, and Northern nations^ In the most ancient 
bimes Friga or Frea, was the same with the goddess 
Hertha or Earth. To her the sixth day of the 
week was consecrated, which by the Saxons was 
written Fnga's doeg, corresponding with our Fri- 
day. Friga was represented with a drawn sword in 
her right hand and a bow in her left. 

The Idol Seater. — The idol Seater is represented 
on a pedestal, whereon is placed a perch, on the 
sharp prickled back of which he stood. His head 
was uncovered and his vision lean. In his left 
hand he held up a wheel, and in his right hand was 
a pail of water, wherein were flowers and fruits ; 
and his dress consisted of a long coat, girded with 
^' linen. The appellation given to the day of his cele- 
bration is still retained. The Saxons named it 
Seater' s doeg^ which we call Saturday. — Dr. Jeffer^, 



The total number of human beings on earth is 
now computed in round numbers at 1,000,000,000 
They speak 3064 now known tongues, and in which 




upwards of 11 00 religions or creeds are preached. 
The average age of life is 33 ^ years. One fourth 
of the born die before they reach the age of seven 
years, and the half before the seventeenth year. 
Out of lOO persons only 6 reach the age of 60 
years and upwards, while only 1 in lOOO reaches 
the age of lOO years. Out of 500 only one attains 
the age of 80 years. Oat of the 1,000,000,000, 
living persons, 330,000,000, die annually, 91,000, 
daily, 3730 every hour, 60 every minute, and con- 
sequently 1 every second. The loss is, however, 
balanced by the gain in new births. 



Age of Man. 



But few men die of old age. Almost all die of 
disappointment, passion, mental, or bodily toil, or 
accident. The passions kill men sometimes even 
suddenly. The common expression, "choked with 
passion," has little exaggeration in it; for even, 
though not suddenly fatal, strong passions shorten 
life. Strong-bodied men die young — weak men live 
longer than the strong, for the strong use their 
strength, and the weak have none to use, The 
latter take care of themselves, the former do not. 
As it is with body, so it is with mind and teoaper. 
The fctropg are apt to break down, or, like the 
candle, to run, the wick burned out. The inferior 
animals, which live, in general, regular and tem- 
perate lives, have generally their prescribed term 
of years. The horse lives twenty-five years; the 
ox fifteen or twenty ; the lion about twenty ; the 
dug ten or twelve; the rabit eight; the guinea- 
pig six to seven years. These numbers all bear a 
similar proportion to the time the animal takes to 
grow to its full size. 

When the cartilaginous parts of the bone become 
ossified, the bone ceases to grow. This takes place 
in man at about twenty years, on an average; in 
the camel at eight; in the horse at five; in the ox 
at four ; in the lion at four . in the dog at two ; in 
the cat at eighteen months ; in the rabbit at twelve; 
in the guinea-pig at seven. Five or six times these 
numbers give the term of life; five is pretty near 
the average ; some animals greatly exceed it. But 
man, of all the animals, is the one that seldom 
comes up to his average. He ouffht to live a 
hundred years, according to his physiological law, 
ibr five times twenty are a hundred; but instead 
of thatjthe scarcly reaches, on the averagCj four

The moral Danger of the Theatre. 



soldiers and clerks, 32 ; lawyers, 29 ; urtists, 28 ;

the art of prolonging the lives of others are most 
liable to die early, probably on account of the ef- 
fluvia to which they are constantly exposed. — Abeil-

L do not hesitate for a moment to pronounce the

t account the more delusive and the more dan- 
•ous Let a young man once acquire a taste for 
13 species of entertainment, and yield himself up 
its gratification, and he is in great danger of be- 
ning a lost character, rushing upon his ruin, 
the evils that can waste his property, corrupt 
morals, blast his reputation, impair his health, 
bitter his life, and destroy his soul, lurk in the 
[•lieus of a theatre. Vice, in every form, lives 
I moves, and has its being there. Myriads have 
sed the hour when they first exposed themselves 
the contamination of the stage. Light and 
kness are not more opposed to each other than 
Bible and the play-book. If the one be good, 
other must be evil. If the Scriptures are to be 
3yed, the theatre must be avoided. The only 
y to justify the stage, as it is, as it has ever been, 
it is ever likely to be, is to condemn the Bible — 
) same individual cannot defend both.

bear arms is but one-eighth of the population.

A short sketch of the origin and 
growth of Philadelphia. 



This fine and prosperous city was founded byWil- 
liam Penn, first proprietor of the province of Pennsyl- 
vania, and of the three lower counties now belong- 
ing to it, in the year of our Lord 1682 ; and grew 
so rapidly that in the year 1753 the dwelling hous- 
es therein numbered already 2300 ; and, accord- 
ing to a census taken in December 1769, the num- 
ber of residences amounted to 4474, independent 
of public buildings, warehouses, shops, &c. 

If we assume the number of inhabitants of one 
house to be on an average eight, the population of 
Philadelphia would be shown to have amounted to 
35,792. 

From the weekly statements of the Custom House 
in reference to the ships coming in and going out, 
we plainly can see that this city could, in regard 
to commerce, compete with any within the British 
colony in America. — As early as the year 1753 
the year mentioned before, there were 117 sea-ves- 
sels at one and the same time riding at anchor in 
the harbor of Philadelphia, and in the year 1771, 
742 ships had left and about the same number ar- 
rived, most of which were owned by merchants of 
this place. 

Of Public Buildings Philadelphia possessed the 
following : three English Episcopal churches, three 
Presbyterian churches, one Baptist church, two 
German Lutheran churches, and one stately school- 
house, boasting a spire and bells ; then there were 
a new, commodious, and well proportioned Re- 
formed church, one Moravian church, one Metho- 
dist, and four Quaker meeting-houses ; two Boman 
Catholic churches, and, about one mile distant 
from town, a Swedish Lutheran church. Further- 
more must be mentioned the High-school or Acad- 
emy, the Town and Courthouse, in the first of 
which the Assembly used to meet ; the provincial 
Hospital, the Workhouse and House of Correc- 
tion, one of the handsomest buildings in all Ameri- 



1876].

A Page From History. 



"About the year 1754, Dr. Thomas Eckarly 
^d his two brothers came from Pennsylvania, and 
mped at the mouth of a creek, emptying into 
e Monongahela, eight or ten miles below Mor- 
Dtown; They were Dunkards, and from that 
'cuuistance. the watercourse on which they fixed 
emselves for awhile, has been called Dunkard's 
eek. While their camp continued at this place, 
ese men were engaged in exploring the ountry ; 
d ultimately settled on Cheat Biver, at the Dunk- 
bottom. Here they erected a cabin for their 
celling, and made such improvements as enabled 
era to raise the first year, a crop of corn sufficient 
r their use, and some culinary vegetables, their 
ns supplying them with an abundance of meat, 
a flavor as delicious as the refined palate of a 
)dern epicure could wish. Their clothes were 
ide chiefly of the skins of animals, and were 
sily procured, and although calculated to give a 
otesque appearance to a fine gentleman in a city 
"awiug-room ; yet th'^jy were particularly suited to 
pjieir situation, and aff'orded them comfort. 
Here they spent some years entirely unmolested 
] the Indians, although a destructive war was 
len waging, and prosecuted with cruelty, along 
le whole extent of our frontier. At length to ob- 
in an additional supply of ammunition, salt and 
liirting, Dr. Eckarly left Cheat, with a pack of 
irs and skins, to visit a trading post on the She- 
mduah. On his return, he stopped at Ft. Pleas- 
it, on tbe South Branch; and having communi- 
ated to its inhabitants the place of his residence, 
jiod the length of time he had been living there, 
e was charged with being in confederacy with 
le Indians, and probably at that instant a spy, 
samining the condition of the fort. In vain the 
►ootor protested his innocenco and the fact that he 




had not even seen an Indian in the country; the 
suff"ering condition of the border settlements, ren- 
dered his account, in their opinion, improbable, and 
he was put in confinement. 

The society, of which Dr. Eckarly was a mem- 
ber, was rather obnoxious to a majority of the 
frontier inhabitants. Their intimacy with the In- 
dians, although cultivated with the most laudable 
motives, and for noble purposes, yet made them 
objects at least of distrust to many. Laboring 
under ihese disadvantages, it was with difficulty 
that Dr. Eckarly prevailed on the officer of the 
Fort to release him, and when this was done, he 
was only permitted to go home under certain con- 
ditions — he was to be escorted by a guard of armed 
men, who were to carry him back if any discovery 
were made prejudicial to him. Upon their arrival 
at Cheat, the truth of his statement was awfully 
confirmed. The first spectacle that presented it- 
self to their view, when the party came within 
sight of where the cabin had been, was a heap of 
ashes. On approaching the ruins, the half decayed, 
and mutilated bodies of the poor Dunkards, were 
seen in the yard; the hoops, on which their scalps 
had been dried, were there, and the ruthless hand 
of desolation had waved over their little fields. 
Doctor Eckarly aided in burying tbe remains of 
his unfortunate brothers, and returned to the fort 
on the South Branch." 



History of the Septuagint. 

The Septuagint is the Greek version of the Old 
Testament. Justin Martyr, one of ^ the Christian 
fathers, who was born in the early part of ihe 
second century, gives the following account of the 
origin of the Septuagint : 

*But if any one says that the writings of Moses 
and of the rest of the prophets were also written 
in the Greek character, let him read profane his- 
tories, and know that Ptolemy, king of Egypt, 
when he had built the library in Alexandria, and 
by gathering books from every quarter, had tilled 
it, then learnt that very ancient histories, written 
in Hebrew happened to be carefully preserved ; 
and wishing to know their contents, he sent for 
seventy wise men from Jerusalem, who were ac- 
quainted with both the Greek and Hebrew lan- 
guages, and appointed them to translate the books ; 
and that in freedom from all disturbance they

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1876. 



ightthe more speedily complete the translation 
3 ordered that there should be constructed, not 

h the city itself, but seven stadia off, (where the 
hares was built) as many little cots as there were 
anslators, so that each by himself might complete 
is own translation ; and enjoined upon those offi- 
3rs who were appointed to this duty, to afford 

" em all attendance, but to prevent communica- 
on with one another, in order that the accuracy 

'2 ■ the translation might be discernible even by 
leir agreement. And when he ascertained that 

)9 le seventy men had not only given the same 

5 leaning but had enjployed the same words, and 
ad failed in agreement with one another not even 
► the extent of one word, but had written the 

I) ime things, and concerning the same things, he 
as struck with amazement, and. believed that the 
•anslation had been written by divine power, and 

3lerceived that the men were worthy of all honor, 

,^& beloved of God : and with many gifts ordered 
lem to return to their own country. And having: 
i was natural, marveled at the books, and conclu- 
ed them to be divine, he consecrated them in 
bat library. These things, ye men of Greece, 
re no fables, nor do we narrate fictions; but we 

- urselves having been in Alexandria, saw the re- 
lains of the little cots at the Pharos, still preser- 

" ed, and having heard these things from the in- 
abitants, who had received them as part of their 
ountry's tradition, we now tell to you what you 
an also learn from others, and specially from those 
ise and esteemed men who have written of these 
bings, Philo and Josephus, and many others.— 

1 Jut if any of those who are wont to be forward 

1 contradiction say that these books do not belong 
1 3 us, but to the Jews, and should assert that we 

2 vain profess to have learnt our religion from 
1 hem, let him know, as he may from those very 
H bings which are written in these books, that not 
[1 them, but to us, does the doctrine of them re- 
M iT. That the books relating to our religion are 

. J this day preserved among the Jews, has been a 
^^ rork of Divine Providence on our behalf; for lest 
^1 ly producing them out of the church, we should 
l\ ive occasion to those who wish to slander us to 
^1 harge us with fraud, we demand that they be pro- 
— ucedfrom the synagogue of the Jews, that from 
he very books still preserved among them it 
night clearly and evidently appear, that the laws 
wei rhich were written by holy men for instruction 
j^t lertain to us." 

— m-m «m • 

^^' Sunday Schools. 



We suppose it will startle some of our brethren 
^hen we tell them that the first Sunday School 




ever introduced, was started by the Brethren, but 
facts are stubborn things, when we wish to avoid 
them, but in this one, we glory as it will effectu- 
ally remove that imaginary stigma cast upon the 
institution by saying, "In this thing, like many 
others, we are patterning after the world." Some 
of our early brethren manifested a zeal and spirit 
of enterprise that ought now to put us to shame 
when we see and learn how little we have done 
and are now doing 

The great ^''American Encyclopedia,^'* in their 
occount of the "Brethren" or 'Dunker" Church, 
says : 'In the year 1740, or about that time, forty 
years before the present general system of Sunday 
School intsruction was introduced, Robert Raikes 
and Ludwig Hoecker, (Bro. Obed), established a 
Sunday School which was maintained upwards of 
thirty years." 

This makes about 136 years since Sunday 
Schools were introduced among the Brethren, and 
where are we to-day ? 

We made an effort to get some statistics to show 
the nature and extent of the Sunday School work 
in the Cburch, but to a very great extent failed, 
as but a few, out of the many schools that we 
know of, reported, but as this is our "Centennial" 
year of American Independence we will give 
what we have, to show our brethren a hundred 
years hence that we had not altogether forgotten 
the labors of those who lived so long a time before 
us. The following is an abridgement of the re- 
ports received : 

The Panther Creek Church Sunday School, Roan- 
noke county, LI., was organized in 1873, and now

general good interest by all in attendance. 

B. F. Bauseb, Supt. 
Ogan's Creek Sunday School, Wabash county, 
odiana, organized 8rd Sunday in May, 1875. 
There are about 50 scholars in regular attend- 
nce. All are pleased with the school and are en 
Durasred to continue the work, as seven of the 
jholars have resolved to serve the Lord in their 
outh. One brother says : "Before, my boys 
Dent their spare time in play and quarreling, but 
ow it is spent in reading their lessons, their 
apers and committing their verses.
